Peer Review Week 2017

Welcome to our Peer Review Week hub page!

It’s Peer Review Week (11-17 September), an annual event aiming to recognise and highlight the essential work done by peer reviewers.

To celebrate Peer Review Week and in recognition of this year’s theme, ‘transparency’, we have filmed a panel discussion between experts, tackling some of the biggest questions and issues facing peer review today and in the future. We would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and say thank you for the time and effort given by our peer reviewers and the value the peer review process adds to the reliability and progress of research.

 "I was really delighted to chair the panel discussion on peer review where we were joined by four Cambridge University Press colleagues and two Cambridge University colleagues, Professor Kenneth Armstrong and Dr Laurent Gatto. During the discussion we considered what good peer review looks like, whether it could be better, and along the way considered what role publishers play now and should be playing in the future. There are both challenges and opportunities for peer review models and processes and we welcome this debate to keep us connected with our editorial stakeholders, so we can continue to improve the peer review experience and to drive quality and excellence in our publishing programme." Ella Colvin, Director of Publishing, Cambridge University Press
